The Royal Navy's helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious has returned to Portsmouth for the final time.
Crowds lined the port to welcome the warship, which will retire after 32 years of service.
The carrier, which has clocked up 898,893 miles on operations, will be replaced by HMS Ocean, which has just received a £65m refit.
